Cape Town – The Bulls have confirmed the departure of Springboks Lood de Jager and Jesse Kriel at the end of the current Super Rugby season.
De Jager will join Sale Sharks in England and Kriel is heading to Japan to play for the Canon Eagles under Allister Coetzee.
Bulls CEO, Alfons Meyer, thanks the two players for the legacy they will leave in Pretoria.
“There can be no doubt that both were very popular amongst our fans, not only because of their personalities, but also because of their passion for the Bulls and their styles of play.
“Neither ever stopped trying to give 110% and both became Springboks that have graced the green and gold with much aplomb. We are sad to see them leave, but we cannot fault their contributions and commitments while they were here,” Meyer said.
“We wish them well in their careers.”
Kriel has played for the Bulls 69 times, scoring 19 tries. He played in 40 tests for the Springboks, scoring 12 tries.
De Jager played in 20 matches for the Bulls (and 40 for the Cheetahs) in Super Rugby. He has played in 39 tests for the Springboks, scoring four tries.
